Useful Information About the Vertifleur 4ft High Double Wooden Gates

Width Dimensions: The Vertifleur wooden gates are sold as a pair. The width dimension shown in the drop-down menu refer to the actual width of both gates when placed side by side. For clarification purposes, each pair is made up of the following:

  • 8ft pair = 2 x 4ft

  • 9ft pair = 2 x 4ft 6”

  • 10ft pair = 2 x 5ft

  • 11ft pair = 2 x 5ft 6”

  • 12ft pair = 2 x 6ft

Height Dimensions: This is measured from the underside of the gates to the highest point. No allowance has been made for ground clearance. It will be down to the installer to decide how much space to allow although as a general guide we normally suggest 50mm (2”).

Fittings: If you need to purchase the hinges, latch, and other associated furniture, please choose the appropriate fitting pack from the options and accessories menu.

Posts: We recommend installing the gates using wooden posts of the appropriate size to suit your needs. Both “wall mounted” and “in ground” posts can be used however in either instance the gap formed between the posts should be approximately 40mm larger than the width of the gates you order. This will then provide the optimal amount of space required for the hinges etc together with an allowance for movement of the timber throughout the seasons.

Finish: The gates are manufactured from smooth planed softwood and have not been treated in any way to provide protection against the elements. It is therefore essential that all exposed surfaces are stained or painted prior to installation.

Installation: We recommend using hook and band hinges when fitting the gates. For the best level of support, the hinges should be mounted to the top and bottom horizontal rails. For more information, please read our general installation guide.

How to measure the opening for timber gates


 

What size opening will the Vertifleur 4ft High Driveway Gates fit into?

If you are fitting the wooden gates between existing timber posts (with the hinges fitted on the back face of the gate/post) then we recommend the following space is available.

  • Physical Width of 2130mm = Fits an opening of approximately 2170mm - 2180mm

  • Physical Width of 2440mm = Fits an opening of approximately 2480mm – 2490mm  

  • Physical Width of 2740mm = Fits an opening of approximately 2780mm – 2790mm

  • Physical Width of 3050mm = Fits an opening of approximately 3090mm – 3100mm

  • Physical Width of 3350mm = Fits an opening of approximately 3390mm – 3400mm

  • Physical Width of 3660mm = Fits an opening of approximately 3700mm – 3710mm

NB* sizes are based on the options shown in the drop down menu.

What if i need to add wooden posts? 

For installations that require wooden posts it is important to make allowances for the additional space required. The calculation is worked out in the following way. 

Physical width of gates + width of posts (2 x 100mm is sufficient if using wall mounted posts or 2 x 150mm if freestanding posts are used) + 40/50mm (space needed for hinges, latch and opening tolerances)

Example: a pair of 3050mm gates combined with 2 x 100mm posts will require the existing gap between pillars to be approximately 3290mm - 3300mm.

What size hinges and what fittings do i need to complete the installation?

We recommend using 18", 24" or 36" hook and band hinges (depending on the size of the gates you order). We also suggest you add 1 x ring latch and a minimum of 1 x drop bolt to hold the gates closed.

To complement these high quality hand crafted driveway gates we are able to offer you the following fittings and accessories.
